Open Enrollment Summary of Benefits and Coverage

Learn more about potential health plans through a Summary of Benefits and Coverage

Choosing your health plan is an important decision. To assist you with this process, each health plan available through CalPERS has produced a Summary of Benefits and Coverage (SBC). In addition, the federal government has compiled a glossary of common health insurance terms. Together, these documents provide information to help you better understand your health benefit coverage and more easily compare health plan options.

To view the SBCs and glossary online, visit our website or any of the health plan websites listed here. To request a free paper copy of the SBC and glossary, please contact each health plan directly.
